"Shotgun" as written by Paul Edward Draper and Dominic Chad....
I fully understand the shotgun in my pillow
Is no uncarved block at hand
Life is sweet but not it seems for buddha
There's a shotgun in his hand

Shotgun, shotgun, shotgun, shotgun
The nature of uncarved blocks
Is how to describe what's hard to describe
Yeah

The simplest things, the quietest
The child-like simplicity
Everything i need to hear
Positive the way i view
The simple of thought inherit the earth (shotgun blows)
Like winnie the pooh, confucianist rules (shotgun blows)
Oblivious in what i do (oh)
Deliberate the way i live (shotgun blows)

(shotgun blows, shotgun blows, oh, shotgun blows)
(shotgun blows, shotgun blows, oh, shotgun blows)

The nature of uncarved blocks
Is how to describe what's hard to describe
Vinegar taster says
The more force i apply, more trouble i make
(is that i cannot describe why it is
Such a perfect illustration of the opposite and
Complex arrogance we display to protect one another)
Think too much, think too much
Think too much, think too much

    General Comment"The track 'Six' refers to the Number 6, as in '60s series The Prisoner. But the album's named after the Pooh book, Now We Are Six. But the track to do with Pooh is called 'Shotgun' and that's based on The Vinegar Taster, a painting from North China dating back to 5,OOO BC. It features a Confucianist, a Buddhist and a Taoist drinking vinegar. The Taoist is laughing while the others screw up their faces. The Taoist believes tomorrow is another day and takes each moment as it comes and does not taste bitterness" Paul Draper, NME 98

    General CommentAwesome song with great lyrics! I still don't understand it entirely. I guess I can't tie all the pieces of the song perfectly yet.
